Anyone travelling to UnCon should take note that the Circle, Metro and Hammersmith & City lines are all closed for engineering works this weekend. Probably not a surprise to Londoners, but if you're travelling in from out of town it's worth noting.

There will be be replacement bus services, although these are somewhat slower than the tube. The normal No. 18 service goes past the venue, running from Euston past Paddington out to Wembley.

Other tube lines to Baker Street are the Bakerloo (connects to Central at Oxford Circus) and Jubilee (connects to Central Line at Bond Street). Both those Central Line stations are a 10-20 minute walk from the venue.

Beware of tube dwelling mutants as well.

That's no way to speak about the residents of Marylebone.

Get a tube map at the station folks. You might need it.

And, bear in mind that the connecting tube lines which are still operating will be extra busy as a result.

I wasn't going to bring my folder, either. Sad

Update: As far as I can tell, the Jubilee Line will only be running in Central London at the weekend (and only between 8.00am and 9.00pm). All day, there will be nothing north of West Hampstead and nothing south of Green Park on that line.

Update: Sorry to report that buses will be disrupted and delayed, too. There are several buses that go along Marylebone Road, but there will be diversions around the Euston and King's Cross area due to road works and delays are expected. London Transport is so beautifully co-ordinated.
